Everyone in Austin, TX and millions of others across the USA know and love South by Southwest: a festival of music, film, and interactive technologies, that has been held annually for nearly 30 years. SXSW is a major draw for all up-and-coming artists and innovators, which grow in number, creativity, and talent every year.
Prior to the main festival is a sister event, SXSWedu. This four-day event is a diverse gathering of members from the education community, featuring film screenings, workshops, hands-on sessions, and the education startup competition, Launch— in which expii is a finalist!
Expii was selected as one of ten finalists that will compete to win in front of judges and a live audience. Launch focuses on early-stage education startups that seek to redefine and augment teaching and learning experiences. The 5th Annual Launch competition will be held in Austin, TX, this March.
The expii team is incredibly excited to be a finalist in Launch! We can’t wait to put on our game faces, compete, and get to know the education community at #SXSWedu 🙂
Stay tuned for more about our Launch experience on social media! In the meantime, you can read more about SXSWedu below.
